Fall Festival : The Library Booth

I always make a batch of Popcorn Balls to sell at our Fall Harvest Festival to fund projects for the Melville Library. So come join our Community for some fun and games.

Our Booth:

Make a Scarecrow craft at the Booth:

  • Paint
  • brown construction paper.
  • yellow construction paper or yellow wool
  • scissors,
  • glue,
  • black marker,
  • paper plate,

To make this a quick craft : I Pre Painted the plates and all the items to make this craft. Then let the kids just assemble the Scarecrow at the booth with glue.

Halloween Popcorn balls for sell :

The Library sells these cute Halloween themed Popcorn balls to raise money for our projects we do at the Library.

  • 7 quart of Pop Popcorn 
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1 C light corn syrup
  • 1/4 C water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • Halloween sprinkles, M& M and more

  1. Place popcorn in a large baking pan; keep warm in a 200° oven.
  2. In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup, water and salt. Cook over medium heat until a candy thermometer reads 235° (soft-ball stage).
  3. Remove from the heat. Add the butter, vanilla and food coloring if desired; stir until butter is melted. Immediately pour over popcorn and stir until evenly coated.
  4. When mixture is cool enough to handle, quickly shape into 3-in. balls, dipping hands in cold water to prevent sticking.

Have Fun and Enjoy a Game of Pumpkin Toss with your family!
